Are Greyhound buses comfortable?
Greyhound buses are comfortable, but if you sit on them for more than four hours the ride can become a real pain. The seats do recline quite far back, so you might be able to get some good sleep. Not including the time spent at bus stops.
What’s it like riding a Greyhound bus?
You meets lots of people on a long greyhound trip. And most of them will be pretty cool. And even the ones that aren’t are pretty darn interesting. I do more listening than talking on the bus and it’s amazing what people will tell you just because you are sitting next to them on an 8 hour leg of a 2 day trip.
Is riding a Greyhound bus safe?
Greyhound buses and stations aren’t actually dangerous, though you may meet some people you’d rather not know. Bus passengers can be odd and most bus stations are in scary run down parts of town. Keep your carry on valuables simple and don’t leave them vulnerable when you sleep or aren’t paying attention.
Why is Greyhound bus so bad?
Because they’re dirt cheap since a destination that would take 3 hours from a to b in a car takes 5 or 6 hours due to detours and layovers. The plain fact is that more poor people take the bus because it is cheap.
Do Greyhound buses stop for food?
We don’t sell food or drink on our buses, so it’s a good idea to stock up on food and drinks before boarding (not alcoholic drinks though, they’re not allowed). But if you forget, the bus does stop frequently (check your itinerary to see how often), and some stops will have places to buy food.
